Sarah Palin's faked pregnancy - The collected posts about "Babygate" by Politicalgates in one PDF-document

By Patrick

A lot has been published by the bloggers at Politicalgates about Sarah Palin's faked pregnancy. But for new readers, it is not always easy to find the relevant posts.

Therefore I had the idea to compile all our posts about "Babygate" in one PDF-document. It can be downloaded, it can be send around, it is all in one place.

Maybe our posts will arouse the interest of some historians in the future who might ask themselves some questions. Were there really persistent faked pregnancy rumours as well as a non-pregnant looking Sarah Palin shortly before "giving birth?" Why didn't anybody conduct a serious investigation?

We would have some answers to such questions.

Here is the introduction I wrote for this document:

Sarah Palin's faked pregnancy – The collected posts by Politicalgates

Sarah Palin faked her pregnancy with Trig in 2008. This seemingly „unbelievable“ fact has been uncovered by citizen bloggers through diligent research over the course of several years. The media, however, showed little interest and with great confidence filed Sarah Palin's faked pregnancy under „Conspiracy theory – Not to be touched.“ Only a few people dared to disagree in public, for example Andrew Sullivan, Joe McGinniss and Professor Brad Scharlott.

The aim of Politicalgates was always to convince readers with facts, and to present those facts accurately and honestly. The investigation into Sarah Palin's pregnancy has always been a „work in progress.“ The investigation is not over yet. We still do not know the full story. But there are many facts that we do know.

In order to get a better overview about those facts, we thought it would be helpful to collect the relevant posts by the bloggers at Politicalgates in one PDF-document, for easier reading.

The hyperlinks in the posts below are working, and the pictures can be viewed. What cannot be viewed for technical reasons are the video clips which were included in the posts. Here is a list of the most important clips which are mentioned in the posts:

ADN-journalist Michael Carey discusses the faked pregnancy rumours. Interview from September 2, 2008:

In 2010, a reader published her own documentary about Sarah Palin's faked pregnancy.

Part 1:

Part 2:

Later, a third part was created which examined the conflicting statements that Sarah Palin provided about Trig's birth:

The Israeli filmmaker Elan Frank had exclusive access to Sarah Palin on April 8 and 9, 2008, just about 10 days before Trig was officially born. He recorded extensive footage, part of which was included in a documentary by Fox News about Sarah Palin in 2008. The excerpts by Elan Frank which were used by Fox News have been cut together in the following clip for easier viewing:

Later in 2009, more of this footage by Elan Frank was shown on Israeli TV:

What else is there to say? Although Sarah Palin's political career appears to have finished, the fact that a female Governor and Republican vice-presidential candidate faked a pregnancy for political gain is still a major scandal, and one which is waiting to be finally acknowledged.

Almost equally scandalous is the treatment this affair has received by most parts of the media. Since the days of „Journolist“ we have known that the media hates this issue. It is politically inconvenient, it is somehow „birther“, it is not in good taste – and who would seriously fake a pregnancy, and why? Surely not Sarah Palin. Not even she could be that crazy!

Unless she did, unless she is.


The following video in particular should not be missed: Sarah Palin's faked pregnancy, an open secret in Alaska. Interview with Michael Carey, journalist with the Anchorage Daily News, from September 2, 2008.


Palin-biographer Joe McGinniss"I think the Politicalgates archives are the best single available resource for anyone wondering why questions are still being asked about Sarah really being Trig’s birth mother." (from August 28, 2011)
Kathleen Baker, editor of Politicalgates, writes in the UK "Guardian" about Sarah Palin's faked pregnancy: "Sarah Palin, unreliable narrator"
